# How to define Missing Invariant Mass within madanalysis

How to define Missing Invariant Mass within madanalysis?

We are using Type-III seesaw model, we want to get a distribution of Missing Invariant Mass (MIM). We do not see the inbult set of variables for the MIM in the plot card. How do we define this?

You can use the placeholders X1(p1), XY1(p1,p2), etc. to define the MIM.

Best regards,

Rikkert

Can you please describe it in a more descriptive way, I am not able to define the MIM for SM neutrinos.

Rikkert Frederix (frederix) said : | #3 |

Assuming that your process has exactly 2 neutrinos in the final state (and that you are using LHE level plotting and not LHCO), you define the function XY1(p1,p2) to be the computation of the MIM of these particles,

XY1=sqrt( (p1(0)+p2(0))**2 - (p1(1)+p2(1))**2 - (p1(2)+p2(2))**2 - (p1(3)+p2(3))**2 )

(please double check this formula; I might have made a typo). Then, in the plot_card, add the neutrinos to a new class and specify that you want to plot XY1 for the first 2 particles in this new class, as you would do for any other plot.

Let me know if this helps.

Rikkert

Hi,

Thank you very much for your nice explanation.

I have a doubt that should I define this function of XY1 in kin_functions.f?

What about the function if I have anti neutrinos along with neutrinos in

the final state?

Deepanjali

Hello Deepanjali,

XY1 should be defined in kin_functions.f. The placeholder is there.

Anti-neutrinos can be treated in the same way is the neutrinos by adding them to the same class.

Best,

Rikkert

Hi,

I defined the variable for MIM as given below in kin_function.f,

DOUBLE PRECISION FUNCTION XY1(P1,P2)

c******

c Missing Invariant Mass of two particles.

c******

IMPLICIT NONE

c

c Arguments

c

double precision p1(0:3),p2(0:3), dsign

c-----

c Begin Code

c-----

XY1 = sqrt((p1(

Dear Deepanjali,

The kin_function.f is a fortran77 file. You'll have to use syntax that is fortran77 compatible (including the 6 white spaces at the beginning of each line). Please look on-line for introductions to programming in fortran77.

Best,

Rikkert

Hi,

I checked that all the lines have 6 blank white space. Still showing the

same error.

Please give me suggestions over it.

Thanking you.

Deepanjali

Hi,

If I'm correct it should be 7 space not 6.

including before the DOUBLE PRECISION FUNCTION XY1(P1,P2)

Otherwise this is pure computing, and it will be very difficult to help you via mail/internet (and not our role actually).

So if you still have problem, I would suggest to find a f77 expert within your collegue and/or ask your IT team for help on this.

Cheers,

Olivier
